    i really like this article! it has so much information and it gives a lot of behind the scenes on the people in the play. You really get to experience the people rather than just the characters they’re playing. great job!

    I love how you interviewed so many people including the teacher. This is informative about the dates and how long the play should be. It is very interesting to see what the people were thinking.
